Magic Dart is a level 1 Conjurations spell which throws a dart of energy at an opponent, which can never miss or be blocked. However, its relatively weak damage is reduced by AC, making it virtually useless against moderately armoured opponents.

What this spell lacks in lethality compared to other level 1 spells, it makes up for with excellent range and the fact that it can't miss the target, which makes it useful for activating Iskenderun's Battlesphere. Even so, Magic Dart becomes obsolete as a combat spell by the mid-game; forget it once you've acquired some more potent attack options.

Hedge Wizards and Conjurers begin with this spell memorized.
